You can help us: your contributions support Eastern Bloc's community & activities!

Eastern Bloc is celebrating 10 years supporting emerging media artists in Montreal! Since 2007, Eastern Bloc has attentively investigated the themes and technologies emerging artists engage with, and we have shared their curiosity and constant state of experimentation with digital technologies.

Through exhibitions, workshops, and other events such as Data Salon, Eastern Bloc has supported projects that other more-established artists-run centres cannot present because of their state of “emergency.” This capacity to adapt to changes in art-making and the strong desire to support artists “emerging” within the margins of Montreal’s media art scene is Eastern Bloc’s strength.

In 2018 we are asking your support to continue our mission. By making a donation to Eastern Bloc, you:

  • offer emerging artists an opportunity to showcase their work in a professional environment and increase their visibility and networking opportunities
  • support projects that will make you see the unseen, hear the unheard and experienced the indescribable!
